Raja Koduri Joins Intel as Chief Architect Cores and Visual Computing

Share

Raja of course has a long history in the GPU space as a leader in GPU architecture, serving as the manager of AMD's graphics business twice, and in between AMD stints serving as the director of graphics architecture on Apple's GPU team.

As if that wasn't weird enough, this hardware news follows an announcement earlier in the week that Intel will be teaming up with AMD (using a Polaris spin-off chip, specifically) to take on Nvidia in the laptop market.

Nevertheless, Intel faces a long road from the graphics blocks it now puts on its PC processors to a full portfolio from high-end discrete to embedded GPU parts.

On the other hand, Intel and AMD are getting along pretty good right now.

The Commission based its probe into the sexual allegations on a letter Saritha had written, from prison, on July 19, 2013. The CM said the report has been tabled in the Assembly taking the public interest into consideration.

Soon after announcing a partnership with AMD to create a new 8th Gen Core chip that'll house an Intel CPU and AMD GPU, Intel has announced the appointment of Raja Koduri as Intel chief architect and senior vice president of new Core and Visual Computing group.

With Koduri at the helm, though, Intel clearly believes it will be able to avoid the missteps of Larrabee and finally launch a high-performance graphics product which can hold its own against parts from Nvidia and AMD. And they are also not as good at graphics performance as AMD's stand-alone Radeon graphics chips and Nvidia's stand-alone GeForce graphics chips.

Yet while Intel has GPU-like products for certain markets, the company doesn't have a proper GPU solution once you get beyond their existing GT4-class iGPUs, which are, roughly speaking, on par with $150 or so discrete GPUs. Going forward under Koduri's leadership, the company will unify and expand differentiated IP across computing, graphics, media, imaging and machine intelligence capabilities for the client and data center segments, artificial intelligence, and emerging opportunities like edge computing.

Raja Koduri, the highly rated former senior vice president and chief architect of AMD's Radeon Technologies Group, has moved over to Intel to drive its integrated graphics efforts. 'We have exciting plans to aggressively expand our computing and graphics capabilities and build on our very strong and broad differentiated IP foundation.

Everytown for Gun Safety reported around 54 percent of mass shootings involve a partner or another family member being killed . When it comes to guns, however, America is in a state of painstakingly manufactured gridlock.

AMD CEO Lisa Su took over as head of AMD's Radeon Technologies Group during Koduri's sabbatical, but the company will now be looking to hire a new head to deliver the graphics roadmap sketched out by Koduri. Aside from AMD, Intel will also be competing with Nvidia, which has had considerable success over the past few years both on the PC graphics side and in the fields of AI, autonomous driving, and visual computing.

Koduri will officially start in his new role at Intel in early December.
